Former National Security Adviser Sambo Dasuki

For the third time, former National Security Adviser (NSA), Mohammed Sambo Dasuki lost Tuesday in a bid to stop his trial.

Dasuki is involved in three different charges before three courts.

He is charged with some others in alleged money laundering charges before Justices Hussein Baba Yusuf and Peter Affen of the High Court of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), Maitama, Abuja.

He is charged alone before Justice Adeniyi Ademola of the Federal High Court on charges of illegal possession of firearms and money laundering.

In separate rulings earlier this year, Justice Baba-Yusuf and Affen dismissed application by Dasuki seeking to be discharged of the charges against him.

He also sought to restrain the Federal Government from further prosecuting him in any court in Nigeria on the ground that the Fed Govt allegedly flouted orders of the court, admitting him to bail.

Ruling on a similar application this morning, Justice Ademola held that the reliefs sought by Dasuki were “not grantable.”

The judge was of the opinion that the nation’s laws have made adequate provision for redress where contempt of court is alleged.

Relying on the provision of Section 306 of the Administration of Criminal Justice Act (ACJA) 2015, the judge also refused Dasuki’s prayer for stay of further proceedings in the case.

He dismissed the application, thereby making it the third time a court will be rejecting Dasuki’s move to stop his trial.
